I believe that Permatex can attack certain plastics, such as servo arms. It's best left to use with metals.

Your link is to Red Thread Locker. Intended to be used on metal fasteners 1/4" to 3/4" and removal "improbable". Requires temperatures in the range of 450 F (232 C) to disassemble. OOH, also will not cure exposed to air.
